There is also a major league stadium (granted, a crappy one) already in the city that can be used while a new one is constructed. I am not sure what the financial situation is in Montreal or Quebec province but it is possible that they might have enough money to contribute some money for a new stadium as well. I would just hope that Bud does right and gives the Rays the naming rights and history to the Expos.
I would like to see Montreal get a team back and your right it does make sense with the rivalrys. The idea I really like is that the Expos get back their franchise history from the Nationals. Then you could give the city of Washington their team history from the Twins. I don't think the Twins even care about their history in Washington, nor should they care. I doubt too many Arizona Cardinals fans care about the old Chicago Cardinals so why would a Twin fan care about the old Senators.
